there was a young entrepreneurial knight who was destined to become king. The only thing that stood in his way were the Seven Dragons of the Online World that had devoured so many of the brave warriors before him. His name was Sir William.
Sir William had already proven successful in his career and brick-and-mortar business, but the Online World was a dark and mysterious place ruled by Seven Fiery Dragons. Sir William was brave and determined to slay these crafty winged serpents to take his rightful place on the throne.
Have you ever had a nagging feeling in your gut that you were meant to do something more with your life? You know, that feeling of discontent that keeps you lying awake at night. You know you’re smart enough and willing to put in the work, but you’re also not sure if you can pull it off.
You ask yourself, “Where would I even start? I’m not even sure I have the skills. What if I fail? What will my friends think? Will my family be supportive?” There are so many “what ifs”!
I felt the same way back in February 1998, one month before my first child was born. I knew that if I was ever going to be able to follow my dreams and create the life I had envisioned for my family, I had to make my move. It was now or never.
I wanted more money, more meaning, and more freedom in my life. However, no matter what I tried, my career path limited me on all fronts. I was attacked by fear and self-doubt. If I’m honest, the idea of throwing caution to the wind to start my own business had me scared to death!
I’ll never forget the day I mustered up the courage to walk into my boss’s office and quit. It was a defining moment in my life where fear and freedom collided.
